Sorry all, but this is how I feel and I'm sorry if I piss anybody off. After fortyfive years of watching/listening everybody tell us whats best for us and by "everybody" government and manufactures alike it's like this, I like my four strokes but you can't beat a nice light tourqie open class 2 stoke for tight trails, hell for two track and fire roads for that matter! The so called noise is music and the exhaust is prefume. end of story. One last thing if anybody has figured out how to get the spouse to dab a little castor oil or Klotz behind the ear please tell me after more than 30 years my wife still says no.
